@pbrisbin Saw the news about your daughter's arrival! That's excellent and exciting news - congratulations! It's a _fun_ ride, so strap in and enjoy :)
Hope you're doing well, man
Had a minor scare when an account of mine got singed into from Thailand so I spent some time cleaning up passwords and doing an audit of any issues 1password and "have I been pwned" tell me I have.
Tell you what. Cleaning 1pass and blowing away accounts on all these old services is SATISFYING AS FUCK.
I used to be able to pull up to a computer at around 8 or 9pm and get some stuff done - either for work, freelance, or for my side projects.
No longer. After my son's put to bed I just can't get my brain up to speed.
And I feel guilt for this fact.
I know it's stupid. I know it's ridiculous. But it is. And it's a paradox because I KNOW it's ok to not "work" when it's night time. Also - I'm lucky that I don't _have_ to do this, and I realize that.
y'all, please send virtual hugs to the Brazilian people tonight, who lost their entire national museum in a catastrophic fire. thousands of artifacts that date back thousands of years were lost, as well invaluable artworks from many cultures. this is a terrible loss for humanity.
as an anthropologist, artist and a lover of brazilian culture, and as someone who studied tupi, this loss is staggering and tremendous.
My next venture might be my most (only) successful business ever - a service that will write you bespoke, just-in-time "IS RAILS/RUBY DEAD!(?)" blog posts. For an extra charge we'll schedule several posts over however many months. Want a new one every 3 months? OKAY!
Our guarantee - front page of HN every time.
Ah, ok. "Dunking". I get it. Today I learned something.
Thought (maybe?) - "oh cool, let's see what sort of PHYSICAL things I could do to not be a blob" and instead ... nope.
